Weʼve raised £1,180 to Support us in completing a skydive in memory of friends and family and Planets Cancer Charity, Southampton, on 21st October
- Southampton, UK
- Funded on Friday, 7th December 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are, Lee Marsh and his daughter Lauren Marsh, Joe Traykov and his son Niki Traykov
On 21st October (revised date) we are going to jump out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,000 feet in memory of friends and family that have suffered from pancreatic cancer over the last few years. They have all been supported by Planets Cancer Charity who are based in Southampton Hospital.
Over the last few years Lee has lost two very good friends to pancreatic cancer and his auntie has suffered from it for several years, without the support from Planets Cancer Charity it would be a very different story.
PLANETS helps patients with pancreatic, liver, colorectal, oesophageal, stomach and neuroendocrine cancer by funding patient support groups, innovative treatments and research. Since 2011 they have raised over £840,000!
PLANETS is more than just another local cancer charity, it is a motivating and unifying force that is changing the way that they approach the fight against cancer across the central south coast of England. Their aim is not just to save lives but also to enrich them in the process by helping the “whole team” to focus together on their shared goals.
In the current, cost cutting NHS environment, research and innovation are in danger of being sidelined. The PLANETS team aim to ensure that the patients in our region still have access to the best available care, judged by international standards. The cutting edge new treatments, such as IORT, that they are introducing will have many applications for other cancers; including breast, bowel, lung and gynaecological tumours. They are also now working with the clinicians from these specialties to help them realise the benefits of the “whole team” approach to cancer care.
PLANETS Cancer Charity is dedicated to serving the needs of our regional population which extends from Lyme Regis to Bognor Regis and provides specialist cancer services to the 4 million people who live across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, the Isle of Wight, the Channel Islands and West Sussex.
Any support you can give us is very much appreciated to help this very worthwhile charity.
Thank you from Lee, Lauren, Joe and Niki
